Confession: I’m the girl who could be perfectly happy in her cubicle at work pounding out emails alone with her iPod and her thoughts. All. Day. Long. I really think I could completely avoid human interaction without trying too hard. But, thankfully, I have friends at work who pop into my cube. Friends who tug the ear buds out and want to hear about my life and share theirs. They make my work life the richer for it.
We all have friends who call just to say hi or say “thinking of you” in a text or on Facebook. But what I’ve been pondering this week is am I that friend? More often than not I wait for my friends to reach out. When was the last time I went to a coworker’s cube just to say hi? When was the last time I invited a friend out to dinner? Friends are some of my most treasured blessings, and I rarely tell them so.
|Some of those blessings: meet fellow Ponderer Jen and her husband, Ben! |
(And dear hubby, of course!)
Next week I’ll focus on the housework (I have people coming over, so that would be a good week to add that to the rotation…) Each week I’ll choose ONE THING I want to do well. Hopefully, little successes will build confidence and some of this will become a habit!
P.S. Note the hat in the picture, this takes care of the hairdo, too!
